Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Dell 8200 I replaced the hard drive, with a new seagate hard drive I brought from dell. I used the recovery disc, to load the widows. I follow all the directions, but it won't finish. It boots up to windows then goes blank. It won't bring me to the next level. I called Dell, and was on the phone with them for almost two hours, they said it was my memory. Can you help? thanks Dana

    yes it formated, then loaded, but it won't give me the screen to go forward. I went to F2, then it goes blank, the screen blinks the next page but doesn't stay. Could it be the memory? , or is my disc NG. or what. I want to repair myself, although I do need help. Dana

Wow..that's bizarre..

I'm assuming you had to format and repartition the drive, right?

when you boot to windows, press F2, and go to set up to make sure that it's looking for the new drive.

    from what you're telling me, the new drive could be compromised. if you can't run a full format/partition, and your recovery disk is known good. then the disk is suspect.

    One more thing..do you have an Operating system disk to boot from, instead of the recovery disk?

How to recove Seagate external hard drive data?


Probably, the new operating system cannot recognize your Seagate external hard drive. You can connect the Seagate external hard drive to another computer to copy data to another device. If the problem still exists, you might need to perform data recovery. You can free download the data recovery software: http://www.icare-recovery.com/seagate-recovery/seagate-external-cannot-be-recognized.html

Installed new hard drive p105 s6064 now cd drive wont work dont have recovery discs


Dell recovery will not work in a Toshiba Laptop. Just make sure the boot order is set to CD/DVD driver first that will automatically start the CD/DVD driver when disc is loaded.

I have a dell inspirion 560 desktop with a seagate barracuda 7200.12 500gbhard drive which failed, i replaced it with another one and its saying there is no bootable device and its hooked up just like...


1) All you need is a *bootable* Windows CD/DVD. 2) Go to your BIOS, choose First Boot device as 'CD/DVD Drive" 3) Second Boot device as HDD 4) Insert the bootable Windows CD/DVD into your CD/DVD Drive and install Windows from it.

Hard drive replacement. can I use 160Gb other than 120Gb original hard drive? how to recover data from dead hard drive? will Seagate replace the drive if it is over 1 year warranty?


If the drive is out of warranty then no....seagate will not honor an expired warranty. As far as the swapped hard drive yea you can swap for a larger drive as long as it is the same dimention (2.5/3.5 ect) and connect (SATA/PATA/ATA/IDE) as far as loading windows you are gonna have to get your hands on a usb cdr drive....either that or create an ISO image of your operating system on a sd card. Good luck

Error loading operating system


If you take a hard drive for one computer to another the windows wil have to be reinstalled as windows looks at the hardware configuation and if it doesn not match, will not run. If the 20 gb hard is working , reinstall it then using backup software back it up to another hard drive.That will work. Personally I use" Acronis true home" software to change a hard drive but their  are other  wil also work. Some  backup and transfer softwware even come with the replacment hard drives.

Will This Hard Drive Work In My Dell 8200?


Yes it will work. You probably will have to use the CD that came with the drive to make sure the HD is recognized.

Motherboard blew up


I would recommend buying a replacement computer, and install the Dell IDE drive in an external 3.5" IDE hard drive enclosure. This way you can pull your information off the the Dell hard drive, and then blow it away.

Keep in mind that new computers use a SATA drive, your old Dell '8200 has an IDE drive. Also keep in mind that your Dimension 8200 drivers won't work on the new computer.

You might be able to install your Dell drive as a slave if you have an open IDE channel available.

Good news is, your old Dell uses RAMBUS memory, which is worth a lot. It's a good parts computer, and most people who look for computer parts know of the bad capacitor issue on Intel made Dell motherboards from that era.

Hard drive replacement w/system restore disc


After installing the new hard drive, you'll need to boot the computer from the recovery disk and follow the instructions to format the drive and install windows. You'll also need to install drivers from the driver disk after Windows is up and running. If the computer won't boot from the recovery disk, you'll need to access the "setup" utility and set the CDROM drive as the first boot device. To access the setup utility, press the Delete key after turning on the power. I hope this helps!
